Overview

Three millennia have passed since the war of the breaking. A time of legends that nearly destroyed the world. Out of the chaos Mankind has struggled, and from the ashes of destruction civilization has once more returned to the land.

But unknown to man a forgotten evil stirs in the west, for generations it has worked its foul craft in the shadows. Growing stronger, no longer content to lurk in the darkness consumed by hatred and gnawing on its own ambitions. It has grown powerful and in its might it seeks to throw down what remains of the old world and destroy the petty kingdoms of man.

The last of the immortals has returned from his self-imposed exile. He has seen the danger and seeks a Talisman lost for three thousand years. Only the sword Aethir, forged by the immortals can save the world.

Old legends have come to life, and the age of man is on the brink of destruction. Now he must convince an outlaw and a fugitive to aid him in its recovery or all is lost.

    Solid Read

    It may only deserve 4 stars but I am giving it the fifth for keeping me up late. Not many books manage that these days. It is a genre book. Another thought it was predicable. Maybe. But, along the somewhat predictable path is a solid story with interesting character development. It is a genre story but I like the genre. It a rip snorter. OK, the kid falls on bad times, perseveres, and start to be something special. As long as the story flows with interesting characters; thank you sir, may I have another? Oh, the sequel is already out. Nevermind.

    Over on that other site a reviewer panned the editing. OK, some small goof I caught; but if that stops your read, you've more serious problems. It is called self-publishing. The price won't keep you from supersizing lunch. I just can't see why people have this complaint for the occasional typo. Too anal for my views and wallet. This book isn't going to halt you in place over anything. The story flow and keeps up interest. The place he used found instead of fond didn't slow the enjoyment he was providing.

    excellent read

    I enjoyed this series. The story is unique and well written. The author has created an interesting plot with nice twists and in depth characters without adding volumes of descriptors. I found I couldn't put them down and was always surprised at the next event in this epic heroic adventure!

    Kirby and the Dark Phoenix: Chapter 8

    ((Don't worry. I got a Pokemon/ The Legend of Zelda crossover comin' next.))<p>Immediatley, lobsters came out of crevices in the coral walls. There were flurries of blue, pinks, yellows, and oranges as they attacked Kirby, Epic and Tac. Kirby inhaled a lobster and spat it out against another one, while Tac ha<p>cked and sl<p>ashed through lobster after lobster. Epic didn't have a spear, so she tore off a particularly sharp piece of coral and st<p>abbed it through a lobster. Heavy Lobster 2.0. came out. He was gray with orange stars lining the sides of his body. Heavy slammed down own of his claws, barely missing Kirby. Luckily, the impact left behind stars, and Kirby quickly inhaled them. He spat them out, hitting Heavy Lobster. Blue bl<_>ood stained the water as Heavy hissed. "Fight Heavy Lobster! We'll take care of his minions!" Tac yelled. Sounds like a plan to Kirby. Heavy Lobster snapped his claws at Kirby. Kirby escaped just in time, left with a shallow scar in his side but otherwise unharmed. He countered by inhaling the stars left behind and spat them out, hitting Heavy in his left claw. Heavy swung his right claw again, but this time Kirby wasn't so lucky. It slammed Kirby against the wall, bubbles forming in the water as his breath was knocked out of his lungs. Kirby inhaled a nearby lobster and spat it out at Heavy Lobster. Heavy dodged the attack, and lunged his claws at him. It grabbed Kirby. He was struggling against the iron grip when Heavy hissed. It turns out Tac st<_>abbed him in his tail. Heavy let go of Kirby and turned his attention towards the ninja cat. Kirby took advantage by grabbing a piece of carol and he swam under Heavy Lobster and st<_>abbed him where Kirby knew his heart would be. Heavy hissed in pain and sank towards the floor. Epic swam over to Heavy and said to him. "Where's the Star Rod?!" Heavy hissed in laughter as he said "I shall not tell you." Then his beady eyes glazed over. "C'mon guys! We should look around." Epic said. They seached the hideout until Kirby found something. It was a map. There on it was several locations marked with claw marks. And one spot that caught Kirby's attention said "DRAGOMAGMA'S HIDEOUT" and below said "LOCATION OF STAR ROD". Kirby waved his arms to bring his friends to his find. "Why would Heavy Lobster 2.0. mark his map where others could see it?" Asked Tac. "Beats me." Replied Epic. With that they swam to the surface.<p>***<p>"Did you find the Star Rod?" Asked Wheelie when they swam ashore. Kirby shook his head. "Oh..." She said, dissapointed. "We did find where its located at, on the bright side." Epic said. Tac explained what happened at Heavy Lobster's hideout. "And I thought Dragomagma was nice!" Said Sir Kibbles, noticeably for the first time since Kirby met him. "Say what now?" Asked Epic. "We used to work with Dragomagma, and he was on the good side." Wheelie explained. "You know where he is?" Asked Epic. Tac nodded. Lumin chirped "Let us be off!" Then they got on Dynablade, and they flew off to their next destination.<p>((Wow. Longest chapter EVA! Anyway, tell me what you think!))
